How do I describe myself so that the "Right Person" takes interest in me?
First and foremost you have to find the right words to describe who you are, what you expect, and what your dreams are. If you don't know the answer to these questions, try to ask your friends what they think.
Every day situations can help: Ask yourself what you would like to know about another person, and tell others exactly that about yourself. Try to "sort" yourself into groups, and point out what sets you apart from others, and what makes you special. Yes - you are special!
Such groups may for example be : "City dweller", "Not a country side freak", "Inspired Hobby artist", "athletic", etc. Also ask yourself what you are in every day life, what you like doing, what your style is, and what makes you special.

The following may help you create a representation by which another user can imagine who you are:

SeriousTakes things in life serious. Does not appreciate silly jokes and superficial blabla. Wait till you know him/her a bit closer.
EasygoingProbably a quite tolerant person, who can easily adjust.
WithdrawnProbably rather passive and waiting for others to make the start. At least that's what he/she thinks about her/himself. Shy? Not necessarily - find out!
EconomicalThis may be the more rational down to earth type, longing for safety. Or just a good-deal-hunter.
HardworkingOne of the classic virtues, like economical and industrious. May be a very correct person.
Loving childrenMight want to have children - or just has a way with them. Don't jump to conclusions - find out!
Of good characterProbably very self confident
Good lookingMight have got a lot of positive feedback regarding his/her looks - or just tries to gain points. Most likely very subjective, but find out yourself!
CulturedHas interest in culture, and thinks a high level of education is important.
Of good upbringingProbably rather status oriented. Might come from a family of doctors, lawyers, or manufacturers. Doesn't necessarily expect the same from partner, but a certain life style is desirable.
IndependentWith women it might just mean that their carrier means a lot to them. Doesn't mean that they don't want a relationship.
Career consciousMight expect the same from partner - or at least, that the partner supports his/her career.
